Benches on the Avenue

Tinley Park's Benches on the Avenue public art program has become one of the Village's most popular attractions, drawing thousands of residents and visitors annually to Downtown Tinley. The colorful benches feature the work of both amateur and professional artists and provide spots to rest and enjoy the fantastic creations while strolling through town.

Artwork is based on a different theme each year, and benches are on display from mid-May through October. Each bench is sponsored by a local business or individual, who takes possession of it after the program has ended.

Those interested in sponsoring a bench can fill out the Benches on the Avenue sponsorship letter.
